…. And so it has begun. Tony Abbott has put the Marine Park Suspension into play, with dredging construction already underway to create Australia’s newest shipping highway, Abbott point, better known as the Great Barrier Reef. Completely disregarding the World Heritage Classification or UNESCO protection, Rinehart is removing 3 MILLION cubic meters of the worlds most diverse largest living organism and ecosystem only to build the largest coal export terminal. We are going to lose one of the worlds most truly precious gems to a temporary and damaging “solution”. The Great Barrier Reef will no longer exist because of Abbotts desire for CSG export income. So please reblog and share this to show your support for saving natures gift to the world. Wake UP Australia, and spread the word.
3 million tonnes of mud will be dredged and dumped in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. This will lead to more than 100 million tonnes of greenhouse gases being released into our atmosphere, seriously damaging efforts to tackle climate change. These changes to the Great Barrier Reef will be irreversible and have extreme consequences on the environment. This is the epitome of corporate greed and monetary gain at the expense of our planet.
